Happy Holidays to everyone!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
In 1994, I received a beautiful palomino-colored stallion, but if I remember correctly it was a different breed other than palomino. His long mane is posed as though it were being blown widly by the wind. He has charcoal hooves and an intelligent expression on his face. He has a blaze and one foot is lifted off of the ground. I wouldlike to know his name and breed if you have him!
Congratulations! Your model is the beautiful Peruvian Paso Fino named Tesoro. Hisnumber is #867, and he first came out in 1992. He is a palomino with a cream mane and tail, a blaze, and 4 white stockings. He has the same mold as this year's new model, Embajador XI. Tesoro was discontinued at the end of 1995. His average retail price is $20-$30 for a mint/mint in box Tesoro. THanks for the question Christie, I own Tesoro myself, and he is a wonderful model.
Please email descriptions of your Breyer models to Sara for identification and possibly approximate retail price (if time allows) c/o ASK CHAPPARAL. Email addresses will be given out at the end of the newsletter.

This issue's featured breed is the Dutch Warmblood. Remember, all facts are based on, but not copied from Simon and Schuster's Guide to Horses and Ponies.
The Dutch Warmblood originated in Holland, and the stud book of this breed, held by the Dutch Warm-Blood Society, goes back to 1958. This breed is usually quiet in temperment and about 16.2 hands in height. The coat can be bay, brown, black, chestnut, or gray.
The Dutch Warmblood came from two older Dutch breeds, the Gelderland and the Gronigen, with some blood of the English Thoroughbred as well. Flowing action of the Dutch Warmblood adds to its attractive appearance. Two of the best representatives of the breed are Calyso and Dutch Courage. Calypso won the Volvo World Cup. Dutch Courage won the bronze at the Dressage World Championships in 1978. This breed usually produces good, flashy jumpers.
This is a trivia column. Send any trivia questions to Rachel c/o HORSESENSE and we will print it on the newsletter. The answer will be in the next newsletter.

Here is a song by PonyLover2. It is to the tune of UP ON THE HOUSETOP!
DOWN IN THE BARNYARD
Down in the barnyard the horses pause
Off jumps good old Santa Clause
Off of the back of a sorrel mare
Out of his bag falls a teddy bear
Ho ho ho, who wouldn't go?
Ho ho ho. I wanna know!
Down in the barnyard where horses pause
Puppies play, cats sharpen their claws
They weren't good kitties all year long
Throw their coal out of the barn.
